Hi.  That hard and painful lump under your right nipple may just be a breast bud, which is part of the normal changes which happen as your body begins to mature during puberty.  There is a chance that the lump could be some sort of infection (cellulitis), so you may also want to have it checked by a doctor, just to be sure it's not anything serious.

I'm 13 also, and I have one, so I think this is pretty normal for someone going through puberty.
